Watch the Human Body Do Yoga in an X-Ray Machine

In the past week about 10 friends have shared this video with me with the words "mesmerizing", "enchanting", and "badass" attached. So I definitely thought it was worth sharing with the Yoga Travel Tree community.[wp_ad_camp_1] The amazing folks at Hybrid Medical Animation pulled together a series of X-rays to create a 3D video of the human body in motion (focusing on yoga poses). Here's how they describe the project:

A visual study/exploration of the body in motion with a focus on yoga poses.

Our goal for this piece was to create a realistic representation of radiological (x-ray) imaging.

Instead of just creating a still image, however, we wanted to combine the beautiful moves of yoga with this new visual approach to bring the full human skeleton to life.

Technical challenges included aspects such as achieving proper bone densities and representing actual bone marrow inside each individual bone.

I don't know about you, but this definitely has me inspired to get on my mat today!
